From the New Democrats, Male Pattern Boldness by Bruce Reed
Bush doesn't understand that fiscal capital and political capital go hand in hand. As the president is about to learn, they call it "going for broke" for a reason.
There's a better name for the Bush approach: hubris. The Bush team makes hubris look like the state flower of Texas. That swagger has hurt Bush's -- and America's -- image in the world. If he keeps it up through the coming election, he will stumble badly here at home.
